The network has tapped McCurdy and actress Ariana Grande to star in a spinoff tentatively titled, "Sam & Cat." The series will follow the girls' characters, Sam Puckett from "iCarly" and Cat Valentine from "Victorious," as they become roommates and start a baby-sitting business.
"I couldn't be under a better person's wing, so I'm really happy about that decision," McCurdy said in a recent interview. "I haven't seen a script ... so I'm dying for information."
McCurdy describes taping the series finale of "iCarly" as emotional.
"The last day of shooting was really sad. There was a lot of crying and there were a lot of hugs going around. None of us wanted to say goodbye really."
Besides acting, McCurdy loves singing. She recorded a self-titled album with Capitol Records Nashville, but is no longer under contract with that label.
"I knew that I was starting this show and I needed to be focused on that," she said. "I didn't want any one thing to get too muddied with the others. Hopefully a different label will like to sign me."
She has spoken with Schneider about incorporating her music into "Sam & Cat."
Who would be her ideal guest star?
"Andrew Garfield. I'm gonna marry him," she said with a laugh. "In my dreams maybe. Sorry, Emma Stone. Emma Stone was on 'iCarly.' If she sees this, she's gonna kill me. Oh my goodness. No. I love him though. I love his face. I love his hair! 'Andrew Garfield, I love you.'"
